2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer V6 4WDReview

Good For A Body On Frame Suv — this was moms car that i drove regularly for close to a year. when i first was driving it i thought it was awesome but after having my fusion for awhile now i now think it was only an ok vehicle. handled real well for such a large truck and was a beast in the snow. good torque for around town but only so-so power for merging and passing.

Pros: rsc, handling (for a truck), quietness

Cons: GAS MILEAGE. 11-12 city. 19 highway in summer with NO wind.

The Best Explorer/suv Ever Built. — The 2006 year was a milestone for the Ford Motor Company with the redesign of the Ford Explorer line of mid-sized suvs. I had a 1998 V8 Explorer before this car came into my life, and I can not see what I ever saw in the old one. The designing on the interior is awesome (looking much like the F-150's) and the exterior is beautiful. The drive is completely smooth and Ford did an excellent job reducing the noise of the cabin almost to an inaudible amount on the highway. Safety is a must too. The Explorer comes with RSC which basically gives you stability in sudden turn scenarios, and has one of the best airbag systems in the industry. I would recommend this car to anyone who wants to enjoy driving and wants the best suv on the road. If you drive this car, you will never be able to drive another main brand suv again.

Pros: Everything.

Cons: not having the more powerful engine.

Good Vehicle. By Ken

Could use a little more power. The 3.5L V6 is just not quite enough. However, I'm sure my mileage is much better than if it had a V8, so I'm not really complaining all that much. Otherwise, a very nic... Read More
